Women and Berkshire HathawayReal estate has long been a male-dominated industry, but women are increasingly breaking barriers and making significant strides in this field. From brokers and agents to developers and investors, women are becoming more visible and influential in real estate, bringing diversity and fresh perspectives to the industry.The numbers show that women are making headway in real estate. According to the National Association of Realtors, women now make up 67% of all real estate agents in the United States, up from 63% in 2017. Women also represent a growing percentage of real estate investors and developers, with many leading their own firms and projectsIt is no secret that Berkshire Hathaway is owned by man…a very popular man by the name of Warren Buffet.

I had the opportunity to start an Estate Sale Business with my college friend.  After a few months, we started to have some success. Sadly my friend went behind my back and started working with another agent and eventually pushed me out of our partnership. Real Estate can be an extremely cut-throat industry which is why I fully support organizations such as the National Association of Realtors that promote high levels of integrity and ethics. I wish the world could gain more trust in Agents because as we strive to serve people it helps everyone in the long run even if we have to forgo the quick buck.

By Jason Polancich, Easily learn to do your own digital marketing.
Real estate has been described as a "vanity industry." Negative connotations or personal feelings aside, you can see why people think this. Home listings almost always emphasize "gorgeous" or "beautiful" (or any one of a dozen other synonyms). Listing pictures are typically professionally done to make Zillow surfers stop and take notice at the quickest glance. Real estate signs and advertisements usually carry a professional photo of the agent looking as lovely or handsome as possible. In real estate, it's clear looks are essential - or at least highly emphasized. It's no wonder, then, that most real estate professionals want a "great looking," "super-slick," or "alluring" website. They're also OK to spend a lot of hard-earned cash to get one. Why? Because, as it is with most other thi...

By Jake Evans, Agent in training.
I’m currently completing my training for my real estate agent’s license, and have been tasked with writing a blog in reference to one of the ways to lose a real estate license. For this, I’ve chosen the topic of Dishonesty and why it’s so easy not to do. When posting a listing, or simply with any business interaction (or really, any interaction in general), being dishhonest is possibly the easiest thing in the world not to do. I understand that many agents (and I’ve experienced this in my own interactions with them) utilize clever language to embellish the positive attributes of a property. While this can teeter on the precipice of dishonesty, steering it away from that is quite simple. All one has to do is to not say anything that isn’t true. If you simply make statements that are true...

(Rocky Mountain Realty)
Been selling real estate for 35 years, had 100 agents working for me at one time-I have never seen a market so messed up.  Let me explain, I have been able to reasonably predict the market direction (based on stats, writings, and actual sale numbers, pretty well. ) Most of us can.  But in Utah right now it is a bear.  From March of last year until now we did lose a lot of value (equity) --now however, our market seems unsure of what it will do next.  Short on inventory, but with such high rates, we are in an unsure environment.  Our labor market is tight, but debt is rising---Currently our prices are holding and we are in many instances still seeing multiple offers.......Currently I am advising my clients if they are in it for the long haul 4-8 years, let's move forward and buy, thinkin...

Real estate transactions involve significant amounts of money and therefore require a high level of trust between all parties involved. Unfortunately, sometimes this trust is breached through the practice of misrepresentation, which can have serious financial and legal consequences for buyers, sellers, and real estate agents alike. In this blog post, we will explore what misrepresentation is in real estate, how it can occur, and what you can do to protect yourself from it.What is Misrepresentation in Real Estate?Misrepresentation occurs when an agent provides false, misleading, or incomplete information about a property, its condition, or its value. This can take many forms, including: Overstating the property's features or amenities Concealing or downplaying significant defects or issu...
